Some Origins of Herbs and Spices

It has been almost two years and all of us have never eaten so often at home before the Covid-19 pandemic! The initial eat-ins, then take-aways and after our appetites waned, we attempted to be chefs wannabes and eventually end up humbly dishing out simple appetizing dishes for everyone at home.

And just when we prayed that it is coming to an end, we were told of upcoming booster shots needed for those new variants. What is going to become of us? When is this whole nightmare coming to an highly anticipated end?

Well, many of us ‘health knows-some-a-bit’ are saying that it ain’t over till it’s over, with some saying that there will be second boosters, and a third, and a fourth, et cetera until such time it’s over. That being speculated, how about we dig in and get ready ourselves for the long haul. We will just have to self-help and improve on our elementary cooking skills? Let’s have a look at some of the origins of herbs and spices today for our cooking betterment.

How To Set Up A Website

Set up a website?

Generally, people prefer having their own websites. There’s many reasons for it; some like to have their own online presence, some don’t like to depend on just their Instagrams, Facebook pages, Pinterest or Twitter accounts.

Having your own website is much easier than you imagined. As you might know by now, there’s the conventional way (which I will talk about soon) and the ‘new‘ way (which I will also talk about soon).

The conventional way

This is a proven by decades of usage and millions of users. They were once too, like us, that is, beginners! Everybody went through their learning curves, trial and error, frustrations and joy of building their websites. Gosh!, the feeling of achievement and satisfaction when they did something right in their journeys to their own websites.

Firstly, go and register a domain name, for instance, www.bestofme.com or .net or .org or (many choices!). You should ideally pick a .com but there’s nothing wrong in selecting a different choice. Hang on, you might ask, What is a domain name?  Well, take a look up there at the top of the screen. See that part at the top of your browser window in the URL bar? It’s the part that starts with “http://” in the address bar. The second part of the URL is the domain. An example is titanzones.com. You will soon discover the definition of an internet domain name and how a domain is used. Basically, this is the internet address that people can enter into their web browsers or send their emails to. Find reputable and established companies to register your domain as you want your website to be around for a long time. You can try Namecheap for instance. They have domains starting with $0.99 and less. If you can’t find your ideal domain name, you can use their Domain Name Search and easily find one that you like.

Secondly, find a hosting provider for your domain name and to create your site. You will need to select a host and a hosting plan, which is more like where your website actually lives. The type of hosting you choose will determine the type of server your online home is stored on. But the endless variety of possible uses for your online space calls for some careful planning when it comes to choosing the best hosting solution for you. The tools you decide to run will determine the most appropriate power, storage, and bandwidth options for your business.

At the simplest level, your internet presence is basically a computer that is always on and reliably connected to the network. This machine is called a server, and what it serves can be a website, email communications, a database, sales software, streaming media, or an online store. There are 3 tiers of server services which I won’t elaborate here as I don’t want to confuse you with technical stuff at this early stage. Because so many bloggers want the same basic things, a judicious host can save resources by cleverly pooling some of the engine and plugin functionality across several blogs. That is why for performance, reliability, and security, the most economical solution could be managed WordPress hosting such as EasyWP. The hosting company takes care of keeping the core code and the plugins up-to-date on their security patches and implementing performance-boosting caching architectures. All you have to do is produce that content.  EasyWP is the fast, affordable Managed WordPress Hosting solution for everyone. If you are a true beginner, I recommend that you use EasyWP (they even have a 30 Days of Free Trial) to save your precious hardware from being banged, thrown and stomped by you!

Thirdly, get a professsional businesss email address that matches the name of your domain name. If you’re running a business, you likely don’t want to use a Gmail or Hotmail address. Having an email address on your own domain name looks much more professional! Ideally, you can get it from your website builder or web hosting company, for instance Private Email Service. They sometimes offer free trial for two months. You can check their current best savings deals here.

Lastly but optionally, you can get a super low-cost VPN (Virtual Private Network) which is a fast, secure, and affordable way to protect your Internet freedom. Enjoy a fast and affordable VPN experience and secure all your devices, so you can work, stream and play games, and browse online without limitations.

How to set up a website

The ‘new’ way

This one is easy! It is simplicity and a stress reliever! Of coure, the conventional way works, and although I have chosen simple yet effective tools for you to jumpstart, you still need a bit of time to dig in.

You can try out the ‘new’ way as this reputable company offers a Free account. You are able to build your website for free, combined with their user-friendly instructions and guides. For the first 30 days of using it, you will have trial access to premium features of their platform. You will be able to upgrade your Free account whenever you want. You might be asking “What happens if I don’t upgrade my Free account?”. Well, if you don’t upgrade it after their initial 30 days, you will lose access to the premium features of their platform but you will still be able to use your account. J

How to set up a website

There are many amazing things you can do with your slice of the internet. Even with almost no technical skills, you can spin up a sophisticated yet impressive website that will provide a beautiful space for you to showcase your talentssell your products, and build your brand for years to come.

Moving Forward

Building an online business to earn from home is fun, exciting and rewarding. You will realize that like any other business, you will need to put in initial time and effort. And over time, you will be so pleased with yourself and take pride to tell friends that you even make money when you sleep!

Sqribble Review — The good, bad and ugly.

Let’s face it, we all want more traffic, more subscribers and more daily sales. And there’s one simple solution that still works like gangbusters for this — eBooks.

Whether it’s a powerful lead magnet such as a free report or whitepaper, or a Kindle book that you sell daily… digital books are still an awesome way to attract traffic and sales for almost any type of business.

But there’s just one problem — creating them can cause all kinds of headaches. Writing, formatting, designing… it can take days or even weeks to create an eBook, plus a steep learning curve and a handful of expensive tools you’ll need to master… before you’ve even hit publish!

But there’s a brand-new tool on the market that promises to change all that.

It’s called Sqribble.

What is Sqribble?

Sqribble is a cloud-based tool that allows you to create eBooks (reports, whitepapers, etc.) in seconds. It uses ready—made templates and drag n’ drop design features that make self-publishing your eBooks a breeze.

How does it work?

When you log into Sqribble, you’ll see a bunch of eBook templates to choose from. These are all based on different categories, so you’ll need to find one that matches your market/topic/niche.

Once you’ve selected the template you want to use, you simply click “view” to see how your eBook will look (don’t worry, we’ll add your content next.)

In this view screen, you can see how the book will be laid out and get a feel for the style. If you don’t like it, you can always go back and choose another template (there’s 50 templates to choose from, and you can also edit the templates too, in all kinds of ways).

You’ll notice that the layouts and designs are very slick. They look like professional publications!

Next, you’ll be asked where you want to source your content for the book. You can choose:

— Grab from a URL

— Start from scratch

— Copy and paste manually

— Upload Word File

— Start from Article Collection

Let’s take a closer look at these options.

— Grab from a URL

This allows you to insert any URL you want, and Sqribble will automatically pull the content from that page and insert into your book. It strips the html code and only inserts the text from the page. This is my fave method, because it saves a ton of time, and allows you to use expert content (with credits) so you can target topics and niches you’re not an expert in!

— Start from scratch

As it sounds, this option allows you to enter your content like you’d enter it into a Word document. You just type straight into the page.

— Copy and paste manually

This allows you to copy content from anywhere you want, and paste into the book, where the book will format and lay it out for you professionally.

— Upload Word File

You can get Sqribble to pull your content straight from a Word document, stripping out any code or weird formatting.

— Start from Article Collection

Here you can extract content from Sqribble’s huge library of private label articles which you can use for free, without crediting authors or linking to the source. It’s another great way to quickly fill your book with content, for free!

Finally, you’ll move to an editing screen, where you can resize text, move content around, edit text directly, add media, links, lists, call to action areas, new pages, and a whole bunch of other options for customizing the look and feel of individual pages or the entire book.

You can even add new pages that use a totally different layout to the rest of your book, giving you a huge amount of flexibility and endless options for your book.

While editing, another thing I really liked was the Themes option. With a single click, you can instantly change the color theme and font style of your entire book. It’s like giving your book a new “skin” and it’s just one more feature that sets Sqribble apart from the other tools out there.

Finally, when you’re ready to publish, you hit the little “Generate eBook” button in the top right corner of the screen and voila, your book is now ready!

You can either open the book in a browser to preview it quickly or save as PDF.

Is Sqribble right for you?

If you’re already creating lead magnets or eBooks for sale, then I have no doubt that Sqribble is going to save you hours of work and tons of money on freelancers (if you outsource the design or writing side of it.)

For that reason, I truly believe that Sqribble is well worth the investment and perfectly suited for most small to medium size businesses, especially self-publishers and info marketers.

It’s also a great tool to use if you’re a freelancer or agency, working with clients to create professional eBooks (includes commercial rights, plus a done for you agency website, which is a big bonus!). You could easily charge $100’s for this service, and with Sqribble, you could get the work done in way less time than it wouldn’t normally take you.

The bad

— Some of my favorite features are locked behind upsells (3D covers and Flipbook feature)

— When inserting content from a URL, you need to cite the URL source and/or credit the original author of the content, if it’s not your own (this isn’t really Sqribble’s fault — it’s just the law!)

The good

— Easy to use

— Glitch free

— Unlimited use (one-time payment)

The awesome

— Tons of excellent eBook templates

— Professional page layouts

— Automatic content

— 3D cover creator (available through upsells)

— Flipbook creator (available through upsells)

— Free commercial agency + website included!

Price

A one-time $47 (later will be increased to $197).

About the creator

Sqribble has been developed by Adeel Chowdhry, who is a well-known internet entrepreneur and best seller, with over ten years of experience and has previously created worldwide hits such as Pixel Studio FX which sold tens of thousands of units all around the world. He’s known for creating high quality professional solutions and I expect no less from Sqribble.

Overall verdict

There’s no doubt, Sqribble is a powerful eBook creation tool. Unlike other tools, it’s packed with everything you need to start cranking out professional looking books, reports, whitepapers and more in seconds.

With automatic content, drag n’ drop editing, plus a host of templates and designs ready to customize, you will struggle to find a more seamless eBook publishing tool than this.

Being cloud based is a big bonus too. No need to download any software that clogs up your computer.  Whether you’re casually publishing books or you’re constantly creating lead gen reports for yourself or clients, Sqribble can — and WILL — save you hours of hassle and potentially thousands of dollars in freelance fees over the coming months and years. For that reason alone, it gets my full seal of approval.

Honest Sqribble Review. Is this eBook creator any good?

If you’ve been marketing online for more than 5 minutes, you’ll know that lead magnets, eBooks and reports are powerful ways to build your list or sell directly for profit. But you’ll also know they’re a serious headache to create too. All that writing, designing and formatting… URGHH. Enough already!

That’s why a new product recently caught my attention — it’s called Sqribble and it’s an online tool that instantly creates professional eBooks, reports, whitepapers and other types of digital books with a few clicks or taps.

This concept isn’t new. There have been a lot of different eBook creator tools in the past. But if you’ve used most of them, you’ll know they all share the same frustrating flaws:

— They have crappy templates.

— They are buggy and unreliable.

— They often require additional tools

What is Sqribble?

Sqribble is different. It’s packed with professional templates, seriously good looking covers, and surprisingly, is totally bug free. In fact, the whole process of creating an eBook with Sqribble is satisfyingly easy and smooth.

Heck, it’s FUN.

But perhaps most remarkable of all… Sqribble comes loaded with some of the most powerful features I’ve seen in an eBook creator tool.

Here’s just some of the things this bad boy can do:

— Automatic table of contents

— Automatic headers and footers

— Automatic pagination

— Drag and drop design

— Add or delete pages

— Add your own media

— 300+ Google Fonts

— 50 eBook templates (in 15 different niche categories)

— 10 different eBook themes

— Automatically create content (woah.)

— Turn your book into a flipbook (double woah.)

Seriously, if that’s not enough to make you want to check this thing out, I don’t know what else to say. Apart from this — Sqribble isn’t perfect. Yes, it’s powerful. Yes, it’s going to save you tons of time and money creating eBooks. But it does have a few flaws.

What I didn’t like about Sqribble.

First, the upsells. There’s 4 of them! It’s kind of annoying because they’ve saved the best features in them. Do you need them? Well, Sqribble works fine without the upsells so you don’t have to, BUT if you want more power out of it I recommend grabbing them all.

Here’s a rundown of the upsells:

Upsell 1 — Sqribble professional.

Unlock 150 more professional eBook templates (the best ones are in the professional version), graphics and even more ready—made content for all kinds of niches. (Just so you know, single templates from stock websites would cost you up to $450… for just ONE template!) Great for those that want more variety, content and heavy users.

Upsell 2 — Sqribble Prime.

Get 15 premium “limited edition” new eBook templates added to your Sqribble dashboard every month. This will increase your library over time, and make you stand out from other users. It works out to less than two bucks for a template! (Much cheaper than stock sites.) Great for moderate users.

Upsell 3 — Sqribble Fantasia 3D.

This includes 2-in-1 features.

1.) Unlocks a 3D cover creation tool inside your dashboard, allowing you to turn “flat” covers into lifelike, 3d covers. Great for getting more attention and making your books look and feel more “real.” People do judge a book by its cover, so something to keep in mind.

2.) Create “Flipbooks” that turn your eBooks into interactive and animated pages that turn like in real life. They can be linked to from anywhere online, as well as embedded on web pages with a single piece of code. This is really cool.

Upsell 4 — Auto Job finder software.

If you’re going to be using Sqribble to create eBooks as a service to get paid, then Auto Job Finder is something that you need. It will automatically find you related jobs across various freelance websites and notify you so that you can fulfil them. A huge time saver and money earner.

What I loved about Sqribble

Without doubt, it’s the pro designs, the simplicity and the speed at which you can create seriously sexy eBooks, on the fly.

And the fact you can turn your eBook into a flipbook is just icing on the cake. It just makes your books look and feel more “real” and that’s a good thing for engaging your readers.

The amount of customization is just off the charts too. You can tweak your designs, layouts and everything in-between to your heart’s desire. It even creates a table of contents for you, inserts all your content into a nice layout, play around with the formatting and design, add stuff, delete stuff… it’s only limited by your imagination.

But if the idea of too many options scares you… don’t worry. Sqribble is designed to keep things simple. You can just go with the ready-made templates, layouts and styles, insert your content automatically, and boom… you’ve got a pro eBook that’s going to grab more attention, build trust, engage your readers, and help you stand out in a sea of competition.

About the creator

Sqribble has been developed by Adeel Chowdhry, who is a well-known internet entrepreneur and best seller, with over ten years of experience and has previously created worldwide hits such as Pixel Studio FX which sold tens of thousands of units all around the world. He’s known for creating high quality professional solutions and I expect no less from Sqribble.

Final thoughts

The standard has risen online. These days, your eBooks can’t look like crap, or people just won’t want to optin, buy or read it. And because people are busier than ever, they will only spend a couple of seconds deciding whether your book is worth reading or not.

With Sqribble, you can instantly create books that scream trust, credibility and value, and attract more subscribers and sales.

Creating eBooks has always been a pain for most marketers, but with Sqribble, it really doesn’t have to be. With a few clicks, you can choose a template, add content, tweak the layout and then publish online… in just minutes from now.

Instead of spending hundreds — or even thousands — on freelancers, or even more money on fancy software, I would seriously recommend giving Sqribble a test drive first… I think you’ll be amazed how powerful, easy and quick the whole experience is.
